Abstract

A device for sensing and/or detecting species or stimulus at a locus, preferably at a fluid or moist locus by means of fluid communication therewith, comprising a surface configured to contact the locus, wherein the surface comprises a polyurethane material which material comprises a polyurethane polymer network having a hydrophilic polymer immobilised therein wherein the hydrophilic polymer comprises immobilised therein a ligand or moiety for detecting or sensing species or stimulus and an indicator for indicating detection or sensing prior to contact with the locus and change in indication as a function of species or stimulus present at the locus wherein species or stimulus are selected from chemical and biological species or stimulus; the use thereof preferably for detecting and/or sensing or binding bacteria, or for detecting or sensing pH or for detection or scanning with use of a reader; and a Kit.
